Welcome to The Washington Pain Center 

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Holiday season. As we sit down and we are with family and friends we might have the opportunity to address some potential family issues over dinner. First, families at this time can certainly deal with the troubles of substance use disorder, addiction, as well as alcoholism. While the holidays can be a difficult time for people it might be just the right time to bring these important matters to light and to get your loved one help. One article, listed below, describes ketamine as a potential for treating alcoholism.

I want all readers of this article to understand there is so much new help out there outside of a 30-day program and Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous. Medication management with these programs certainly increases the chance of your loved one's sobriety. Don't let this opportunity pass to confront your loved one and get the help they deserve.

Happy Holidays,

Dr John F Dombrowski

 


What if a single dose of ketamine could make a heavy drinker dramatically cut back on booze?

A team at University College London thinks that ketamine may be able to "rewrite" memories that shape a person's relationship with alcohol. Scientists say that participants who were given ketamine as part of an experimental study dramatically reduced their average alcohol intake for months after the initial dose. Their research was published Tuesday in Nature Communications.

Ketamine — sometimes known as a club drug called Special K that can produce hallucinations — has been shown to be a powerful and fast-acting treatment for depression. Researchers also are looking into whether ketamine can help patients with post-traumatic stress disorder.

The U.K. findings may signal yet another use for the drug for hard-to-treat conditions. In general, the treatment options for alcoholism "aren't particularly effective for the majority of people, particularly over the long term," says Ravi Das, a UCL psychopharmacologist and the study's lead researcher.
